As the title says those two are leaving the team and asked us to post this statement. We are looking forward to their new project and wish them good luck!
"We are Waldemar Fatkin and Camilo Gutierrez, professional bmx riders from Koblenz, Germany and Lima, Peru respectively. We have been ridden for the project deepbmx/autum bicycles from Berlin, Germany more than 6 years.
Unfortunately since our last trip to Japan, we have decided to leave the project together for many reasons. Waldemar was the first BMX team Rider and Camilo the first international rider at the deepBMX crew. We've invested a lot of energy, LOVE and time in the sport to improve the project. Since the beginning of it, we have been promoting the brand and the project in its own internal changes, from deepBMX to Autum Bicycles.
Now we are heading forward for new projects together. With the respect that we have to each other like Athletes and friends. Please feel free to contact us for bmx performance, sponsoring or any other projects.
We wish Autum team riders good luck for the future."
One of our favorit riders of all times started making his own parts! Jeff Desroche from Canada just launched Pegasus BMX together with co-found Jeronimo and their first team rider Dez Maarsen (check the team page). We asked Jeff what his plans are with Pegasus: "I rode for almost every company in flatland to date. For years I have wanted to make my own products, I’ve had many ideas over the years of riding and It’s time to finally produce something of my own design. Please stay tuned for many different products to come on this page. In time I will be adding many new and different product ideas."
We added the first products to the parts section. You can also find (and order!) them directly on pegasusbmx.com
Here is a nice highlight before the weekend. Aaron Barnett filmed Mates Tucek and Martin Drazil from the Czech Republic and also added a few interview parts between the combos. We would love to see more videos like that! Thanks Aaron!
